It is well known that AI (artificial intelligence) is going to capture the technical field exhaustively in forthcoming years. Automation has already hit the market. So, talking about AI and automation, robots and drones come to our mind naturally. Scientists have been working on this area for the past several years and the evolution is striking. Still, the real-life application is not that visible due to the lack of funding and proper infrastructure.
Samsung has come with the concept of a drone which can be controlled by eyes and voice. Back in April 2015, the company filed a patent in Korea with a title “Flying display device”. The same has been officially published last week, in February, almost after three years.
As per the attached images (published by Samsung), a square-shaped display can be seen in the middle of the Samsung drone, where four in-built propellers are present to make the device glide in the air. This drone can catch any kind of movements of the user together with the information like the user’s position, eye and face type. Such activities are taking place because of the gyro sensor, a motion sensor, and a speedometer, embedded in the device itself. Though we can not predict much from the published picture, a vibration system might be included as per the reports. In the authorized patent, a voice-recognition setup has also been mentioned by Samsung. Besides these, some conventional attributes like communication module, obstacle detection is also incorporated.
About two months ago, LG also presented a patent for LG Drone, which consists of a cutting-edge landing system. Hence, it cannot be said that the idea is completely unique. Furthermore, in 2017 a Chinese technology company named DJI, engineered a fully functional, gesture-controlled drone.
